    buff midways flooding chance and torp damage

    Stats say Midway's damage is not bad, and good players can do huge amount of damage with her. Just look at midway's leaderboard... No buff needed.

    WG. How to teach players about ship, game and consumables mechanics

    This is imo the best option. We need a campaign with a kind of operations missions, where you must use gimmicks of ships to beat scenario. Give this beginner campaign a few rewards that will motivate players to do it, and that's it.

    PSA: Despawning fighters

    Then if a fix is coming for fighters (good because they are already in a bad spot, obviously they don't need to be even worse), what about the boosting mechanic with dive bombers to have all bombs located at the top of the elipse?

  5. Hi I've noticed that a correct use of AA sector reinforcement really makes a huge difference, so much that I spec'd a lot of captains with manual AA skill, and now I try hard to switch at good timings during CV attacks. I wonder how this new tool is used by the community, and if people would change their mind about AA if they were using it. How often do you use it? Cheers.

    So what is the consensus on CVs ?

    Saipan refund - are we being serious?

    To be honest, after my first CV games post 0.8.1, I also thought that when uptiered playing CV was hell on earth (or in the air) because AA was shredding my planes and I was incapable of doing damage. Then I understood I was playing the wrong way, and I began being more careful, more patient, and now even when uptiered I manage to do fine. Today I just carried my team in a tier 10 match in a nice Lexington game, something I would never have been able to do a few days ago, I was really excited. I'm afraid a lot of players just give up too quickly, when they could have a lot more fun after they understand how to adjust their play. And this comment is also very much right when it comes to surface ship nowadays...

    CVs are terrible to play against!

    I totally agree, DDs have now to be patient, and be smart in the way they move accross the map. As a DD, I wait for the CV to be busy focusing another target to contest caps now. A lot of people complain about how it is now hard to play against CVs, but they forgot how painful it was before. The main problem is just they still didn't change their playstyle. You cannot continue playing like before and expect everything will be fine. And people really should realize how important is the sector reinforcement. It really really makes a huge difference if used properly..

    Friedrich der Große worth it?

    It's not a bad ship, especially when upgraded. Buy there are better at tier 9. However, I liked my FdG, and I used secondary build on her while grinding for GK. It's fun.

    Giulio Cesare stays as it is + balance of other premiums

    Indeed, you are right, I shouldn't have say it like this. My bad.

    Giulio Cesare stays as it is + balance of other premiums

    Well, what would you expect. What would you do if your company was threatened in a big shitstorm by its customers to never buy anything again. Of course you would go back on your words. The reasons... well, whatever they're true or not is not the point. THe point is WG cannot afford such a controversial matter to be actually done.

    Wargaming is doing bullshittery again

    Not at all. People massively wanted to keep GC as it was:

    Map boarder

    The only thing that imo should be changed with the map border is the way it makes planes turn. I shamelessly say that I abuse it to make sharp U-turns with my planes when I attack someone near the edge of the map. THe planes should still be forced to turn, but not faster than when they do it on open map.

    So what is the consensus on CVs ?

    There is no consensus whatsoever. Some people hate the new concept for many reasons, while some like me, kinda like it for many reasons as well. Try yourself and be your own judge. This is a big change, but not necessarily a bad one, if you take the time to understand the way you play cannot be the same as before, and for all ships. Not only CVs of course. It was not game breaker at all during KotS last weekend, even though not balanced properly yet. But they're working on it.

    Republique secondary build now best?

    I just started playing with Republique. I made a nice secondary build, had shitty games with it, and after around 10 games I switched back to normal tanky build. French secondaries are really fun and nice fire starters. But in the end, I kept only the german line with a full secondary build.
